5000 hours given to the community by Time Credit members

11 March 2019 Posted by

Since Time Credits launched in Cornwall 12 months ago, Time Credit members from across the county have been getting involved in their communities and services collectively earning over 5,000 Time Credits!

Through the Time Credit Programme we’ve seen individuals organising community events, supporting and mentoring their peers, volunteering in soup kitchens, food banks and putting their green fingers to work in local community gardens and orchards. Time Credits are proving to be a great tool for community development, supporting and encouraging individuals with complex needs to engage with services, organisations and activities in their wider community.

“’I use Time Credits to go swimming at least once a week and I also use the gym as well. They [Time credits] have given me a chance to get fit and have made a difference to my life.”
